Personal Quote:

[on creativity] When you have it, it feels like a font that just flows through you, and everything gets real easy. And then one day it sort of slows down or it stops and you tell yourself, 'I'm just having a bad day or a bad month'. And the next thing you know, people start doubting you, you don't have that magic touch. And then you start doubting yourself. See more »


The debut album of his new band 'Zwan' has been a critical fave, as most of Smashing Pumpkins' albums were, and the band plans to spend 2003 touring in support of the disc. Corgan says Zwan will play no Smashing Pumpkins material in their shows, because he wants the band to establish itself independently of the Pumpkins. See more »
